[Duluth, MN] - According to the City of Duluth Public Works and Utilities Department, road repairs will begin on Monday, June 23 along Lake Avenue, between 3rd and 4th Street and between 5th and 6th Street. Hovland Construction will conduct the repairs.

Lake Avenue will need to close in the designated areas to reconstruct the road surface and install a new curb and gutter.

City officials say these blocks along Lake Avenue were dug up last year when a water main broke. Temporary patching was put in place until a permanent fix could be implemented.

Work is scheduled to last through the first week in July.

City crews will attempt to minimize disruption to impacted residents. Motorists may experience delays and are requested to follow the signed detour route.
